    Crafting is (should) be a huge part of the game. Either craft, support a crafter within your clan or buy stuff. I'm not for removing mob dropped completely. We've all been hobos at one point or another. But there should be a cap on the power of mob dropped gear. Once you start approaching that cap, you should be at a point where even if you don't want to touch crafting, you will be brining in enough gold/resources to trade, or buy quality crafted stuff.
    Honestly, remove crafting completely and make everything mob dropped and see what kind of player base sticks around for the long haul.

    I just dont understand the mindset lots of people have about making things as hard as possible to get. I feel like im one of the only people that live in the real world sometimes and understand u can make it as hard as u want and all it will do is make it so people with more time no job etc will still get and wear the end game stuff while the more casual players get wrecked cus they just can't put in the time to get end game stuff. However mob dropped gear to full dura is of course bs.

    Like I mentioned before, it's not as bad as you make it out to be. The bug messed up a few items during a short time and is gone, but those will be gone rather quickly. The mob drop weapons in game are for the most part completely worthless compared to crafted weapons 2 ranks below it. These will serve a completely different crafting oriented purposes later on.

    I like it the way it is. It helps out solo players or smaller groups that don't have the time to put in to do everything by themselves. The bug is unfortunate, but is hopefully gone now.

    I don't think this will destroy the economy, but it is a missed opportunity.

    Having mobs drop "broken" stuff that needs to be salvaged etc. would have just made the economy even more player driven, and overall better.

    Farm gold. Buy stuff. However, we really need vendors. Iam at a Point were i need R40+ and want to buy them but dont have the time for active Trading. Also reduce or remove the cost for racial City Recall. One more benefit for Blues and racial cities become Trading hubs

    Gear is what makes alot of spawns relevant, and gives players reasons another to leave their city, and be found at a wider range of spawns. Fix the dura bug, but leave spawn drops the same. Damn near all spawn drop gear is complete trash to anything crafted so it has no effect on economics or crafted gear value.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but why would you want to kill good mobs if all they dropped was gold? It would prob be a lot easier to just power farm easy mobs. Actually looting ok stuff is kinda nice.

    Agree. I also think removing mob dropped R30+ will just increase the power gap between those who (easily) have access to Gold and / or Crafters and those who are just casual / solo players even more.
    Crafted stuff is and was always better than mob dropped gear. So I don't see a problem here. "Vets" will most likely go for the best option available.

    Man thats crazy. I would have figured a volunteer game run by people with no experience and plan that launch bugs would have never happened.
    Weird. Not to mention half the server is probably already duping.
